Son of Bean

Son of Bean.  2015

I had been mulling over making a spoof of "Son of Man" ever since I saw it in the hall outside of my History of Art class at GRCC.  It's one of those things that I couldn't really come up with the right person mixed with the right expression.  

If there's one thing that I want to do better this year it's sculptures of actual people.  My dad said he looks like Mr. Rogers, and I guess he does in some way.  Rowan Atkinson just has one of those really distinguishable faces.  While this guy has a distinct face, it's not really Mr. Bean.    

I'm still not 100% happy with it, but it was a fun project that caused me to try something really different.  Maybe I'll try again in January of 2016 to see how far I've come.

Here's some of the behind the scene shots
